I'm happy that you like it!

My main two goals were to create a portal for GCJ based on your original
navigation, but trying to avoid redundancy (in terms of code/user
interface design and in terms of information) on the one hand and
incompleteness on the other hand, as well as to keep as much of your
original design as possible.

Let's take this just as a first step and iterate on it; feedback is
definitely welcome!

Do you have any suggestions/preferences concerning the colors?


One thing I noticed is that instead of
  <h2>This is a title</h2>
you use
  <table id="features" border="0" cellpadding="4" width="95%">
  <tr bgcolor="#b0d0ff">
  <th align="left">
  This is a title
  </th>
  </tr>
  </table>

If you revert this, that is, you replace these pseudo-tables by an
<h2> environment, I will hack our style file to do the right thing
for the java/*.html pages automatically.

(This will make it easier for you to edit/add pages in the future,
and more importantly, it will allow as to change style/color in just
a single place in the future.)
